Wind warning for Victoria
Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for the greater Victoria area. Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring.
Arctic air is spreading onto the coast from the BC Interior and winds are rising in response through the mainland inlets. The winds filtering through Howe Sound are moving southeast towards Victoria, with a contribution from instability over the relatively warm waters of the Strait of Georgia. A prolonged wind event is possible beyond Tuesday as the arctic air deepens.
